The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts (Charter Arts) is a regional charter high school attracting students from a ten-county region in eastern Pennsylvania.  Charter Arts is a public charter school, funded by Pennsylvania taxpayer dollars. Students audition for acceptance into one of seven artistic majors: dance, instrumental music, literary arts, production arts, theatre, visual arts,  and vocal music.

Charter Arts’ unique arts-centered curriculum pairs pre-professional training in the arts with a rigorous core academic program. Students study their art discipline for half of the school day and a full academic schedule during the second half of the day. Students are accepted based only upon their artistic talent and potential.  What makes Charter Arts unique, and is a key component in the success of our students, is the arts emphasis within the curriculum. Charter Arts has created a culture of high achievement across all art and core disciplines. Our creative students think and learn differently.

Charter Arts continues to comply with the COVID-19 “stay at home” order by Governor Wolf.  As a result, all additional auditions for the 2020-2021 school year will be submitted electronically.

If you would like to request the opportunity to submit an electronic audition please complete this form.  Once received you will be contacted by  Ann Marie Squerrini, Director of Admissions and Assessments.

ADMISSIONS EVENT:  Prospective students and their families are invited to a Virtual Admissions Event: Coffee Talk with the Director of Admissions on Friday, June 26th at 10 AM.  This is a great first step to learning more about our school and our admissions process.

Reservations are a MUST!  Please RSVP  by emailing

*Please note that this event is NOT for incoming new students, this event is for prospective students and their families who are learning about our school for the first time.
